Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Smells of roasted coffee and slight grape. Tastes of coffee and sweet fruitiness, but in a good balance. Beer is full bodied, good carbonation, and a nice sipper but still goes down easily. Overall, a very good beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. code of 036B16, so I'm guessing bottled February 2016?

Pours thick and oily. Jet black body, even when held up to the light. small dark tan head, which gradually dissipates to nothing at all. no lacing.

A boozy sweetness on the nose. Coffee is only faint.

Taste is a little tangy. Booze is certainly present. Coffee is only a suggestion, may have mellowed with the age? Roasted malt and vanilla are also present. Coffee and vanilla get a little more prominent a the beer warms up.

Mouth is about medium, a little on the thin side for an imperial stout. Faint alcohol burn on the back of the mouth.

Overall, a good sipping beer.

Aroma is dark malts, fruit/dark fruit and mild coffee. The flavor is coffee, dark/roasted malts, mild chocolate and a slightly dry/earthy/acidic finish.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some coffee, chocolate. Taste is strong coffee, some sugars, light alcohol is present. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but I was expecting more.

This beer poured black, with no head to it.
Strong coffee aroma, a little chocolate.
Strong dark coffee taste. The chocolate was a little more of a presence.
Smooth and easy drinking,

On the sweeter and silkier end of the coffee beer spectrum. Had this several times, most recently a 2014 version at the brewery. Pours dark, smooth, rich coffee and a bit of roast in the nose. Mouthfeel is rich and smooth, velvety with milky sweetness up front to balance the coffee bitterness. Always solid, always good to great.

Pours black and seems thick. Small dark khaki head. Head vanishes fairly quick and leaves a moderate amount of sticky lacing behind.

Aroma is black coffee, slightly bitter. Dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, and molasses. Tobacco.

Coffee and chocolate, both dark and a bit bitter. Roasted malt, smoke, earth, and a hint of peat. Brown sugar. Just a little bit of booze.

Thick-ish mouth feel with medium carbonation. Mild but persistent bitterness. Lingering coffee.

Very nice coffee stout. Smooth. Could use a bit of sweetness, but overall, very nice.
